Fungi pathogenic to man have seldom been isolated from marine habitats although oceans are known to contain a wide variety of different fungi. 1 Cryptococcus neo/ormans, ~ several species of Candida, 2, ~ and some opportImistic fungi 1 have occasionally been isolated from marine environments. The exact role of oceans as a possible source of fungi pathogenic to man, however, has received little attention. Ecologic studies have revealed the presence of pathogenic fungi in a variety of terrestrial… Expand
Micromycetes in Sand and Water along the Algerian Western Coastal Areas
The littoral represents the final compartment of the entropic rejections generating great quantities of organic matters. These areas represent an ideal place for the development of saprotrophicExpand
Distribution of Fungi in the Sandy Soil of Egyptian Beaches
The mycobiota of the sandy soil of Egyptian beaches was investigated in thirty six sand samples collected from nine different localities in Egypt. The filamentous fungi were identified and assignedExpand
Filamentous fungi isolated from sand and water of "Bairro Novo" and "Casa Caiada" beaches, Olinda, Pernambuco, Brazil.
Fungi comprehend a heterogeneous group of heterotrophic microorganisms that act as saprobes or parasites or, less frequently, as symbionts living in association with other organisms. They areExpand

Marine yeasts—a review
TLDR
The distribution of species, as well as their numbers and metabolic characteristics were found to be governed by existing environmental conditions, and yeasts are more abundant in silty muds than in sandy sediments. Expand
A preliminary study of the occurrence of actidione-resistant fungi in sediments of Catalonian river mouths (Spain). I. Keratinolytic fungi and related Onygenales
TLDR
Sediments from eight river mouths along the Catalonian coast (Spain) were surveyed for keratinolytic fungi and related Onygenales and abundance of N. marginospora was clearly correlated with the degree of water pollution with sewage. Expand
Microbes in beach sands: integrating environment, ecology and public health
TLDR
Understanding of the community structure, ecology, fate, transport, and public health implications of microbes in beach sand is summarized and recommendations for future work are made in this vastly under-studied area. Expand
Filamentous fungi isolated from Candeias Beach, Pernambuco, Brazil
The main purpose of this study was the isolation and identification of the filamentous mycobiota present on soil and water samples from Candeias Beach, Pernambuco, Brazil. Sampling of soil and waterExpand
The habitat of Coccidioides spp. and the role of animals as reservoirs and disseminators in nature
BackgroundCoccidioidomycosis, a potentially fatal fungal infection, is considered an emergent mycotic disease because of the increased incidence of fungal infections registered over recent years.Expand
Yeasts in marine and estuarine environments
Yeasts and other fungi are prevalent in marine and estuarine ecosystems where they play an important role in the food web. Marine yeasts are unique in performing fermentations under high saltExpand

TLDR
Homogenized preparations of 35 marine algae were tested for inhibitory activity against 6 pathogenic or opportunistically pathogenic fungi with saturated filter-paper discs on seeded Sabouraud agar plates, and 11 of these preparations produced wide zones of inhibition against 1 or more test organisms.

A comparative study of marine and terrestrial strains of Rhodotorula.
TLDR
Yeasts of the genus Rhodotorula obtained from subtropical marine environments were classified by comparing them critically with type and authentic cultures, and characterization of available type cultures indicates the existence of synonymy and the occurrence of divergent metabolic strains within recognized species.

INHIBITION OF YEASTS BY A MARINE BACTERIUM
TLDR
Although investigations have shown the widespread occurrence of yeasts in the marine environment, notably members of the genus Rhodotorula, studies of a marine amphipod community revealed few, if any, pink yeasts. Expand
